Virgin Hotels has announced plans to open and operate a new hotel in San Francisco, CA, expected to open this summer. The San Francisco property will be managed by Virgin Hotels and developed by Paradigm Hotels Group. 

San Francisco’s combination of business and leisure travel, as well as its tech-centric locals makes it well suited for a Virgin Hotel, according to Virgin Hotels CEO Raul Leal.

Located South of Market, Virgin Hotels San Francisco will have 196 Chambers (guestrooms) and Grand Chamber Suites; multiple dining and drinking outlets, including The Commons Club; a coffee shop; numerous meeting spaces; and a rooftop bar.
